The Atmospheric Sciences minor explores a wide range of investigation within synoptic meteorology, forecasting, global climatology and climate change. The course work in the minor is designed to give the student a grasp of the various subdisciplines associated with the Atmospheric Sciences and allied Physical Sciences. Students may select either a set of courses emphasizing a specific area of interest (e.g. the meteorology of severe weather, global climate change, or analysis and forecasting) or a broad spectrum of courses representing diverse areas of inquiry within the atmospheric and earth sciences.
